It seems political turmoil is becoming increasingly common in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. More than five years after the 2003 Rose Revolution, it looks like another regime change might put an end to Mikheil Saakashvili's presidency. During the last few weeks, several protests have been organized by many groups demanding that President Saakashvili tenders his resignation effective immediately. Even former Georgian President Eduard Shevardnadze suggested "the country's embattled president to resign to avoid bloodshed...
Unlike her cosmopolitan brothers and sisters who spread Zionism and tribal racism using a liberal and progressive disguise, Melanie Philips is open about it all. The other day she defined what Zionism is in a very clear manner: “Zionism,” writes Philips, “is simply the movement for the self-determination of the Jewish people. And its significance is greater than any other movement of national liberation because Judaism itself rests upon three legs — the people, the religion and the land. If one is lopped off by having its legitimacy denied, the whole thing collapses. That is why anti-Zionism is far more than an unpleasant political position. It is a direct attack on Judaism itself.”
According to a report by Israel’s Foreign Ministry, the South American nations of Venezuela and Bolivia are secretly supplying uranium for Iran’s nuclear program as part of a plan to “undermine” the US, which publicly objects to the civilian energy program
War veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan came to Capitol Hill this month to testify before Congress and give an eyewitness account about the horrors of war. “Winter Soldier on the Hill” was designed to drive home the human cost of the war and occupation—this time, to the very people in charge of doing something about it.

By acknowledging recent crimes while refusing to pursue the criminals, the president has made his position untenable. 'Every government assumes deeds and misdeeds of the past," writes Hannah Arendt in Eichmann and the Holocaust. "It means hardly more, generally speaking, than that every generation, by virtue of being born into a historical continuum, is burdened by the sins of the fathers as it is blessed with the deeds of the ancestors."
US militarism to continue under Obama Barack Obama has vowed to keep US military dominance in the world by sending military troops to 'theater of war' when and where Washington deems 'necessary'. "We will maintain America's military dominance and keep you the finest fighting force the world has ever seen," President Obama told graduates at the US Naval Academy on Friday.
Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights has declared in a report that hundreds of people were tortured in Iraqi prisons last year. According to the report published in Baghdad's al-Sabbah newspaper Sunday, of the 306 cases of torture and abuse in Iraqi prisons, 107 took place in the semi-autonomous Kurdish region in northern Iraq.
Once again, Mike Savage’s virulent hatred of Islam gets in the way of reality. In the clip below, taken from Savage’s radio program, the nationally syndicated talk radio host tells his audience that the detainees held at Guantánamo and elsewhere are a threat to America. He warns that if these detainees are put in American prisons — as senator Dianne Feinstein suggests — they will radicalize their fellow prisoners in the jihadi philosophy.
On Wednesday, NATO forces launched an air strike in Afghanistan Paktika Province, targeting a farmer along the road. The farmer was wounded, and later died of his wounds. NATO later admitted that "a subsequent investigation has determined that the individual was not emplacing improvised explosive devices, as originally suspected."
Ibrahim Jassam is the latest journalist the US has arrested but not charged. A journalists advocacy group says such actions hurt US standing when it speaks for press freedom and rule of law.
"It has to be repeated again and again: the settlements are a disaster for the Palestinians, a disaster for peace and a double and triple disaster for Israel. First, because their main aim is to make the establishment of a Palestinian state impossible, and thus prevent peace forever. Second, because they suck the marrow out of the Israeli economy and swallow resources that should be used to help the poor. Third: because the settlements undermine the rule of law in Israel, they spread the cancer of fascism and push the whole political system to the right."
Pay-to-Play Research Was Waved Through by FDA A major allergy and respiratory management company knowingly produced flawed clinical trials of FDA approved drugs currently on the market a Texas physician is charging.
The easiest way to spot a liar is that liars always over-embellish their case... While the other Bush minions have scurried away like vermin when the kitchen light comes on, Mr. Cheney stands his ground to defend the indefensible. To try again for the umpteenth million time to make a case long discredited by simply repeating the same, tired lies verbatim.
Unemployment in North Carolina remained at 10.8 percent in April. The state’s jobless rate has jumped from 7 percent last October and was one of 8 US states with double-digit jobless rates last month, led by Michigan with 12.9 percent unemployed. The national jobless rate rose to 8.9 percent in April, up from 8.5 percent in March.
If we hear in the coming days that former vice president Dick Cheney has fired one of his speechwriters – or perhaps grounded Lynne or Liz – it will be clear why. Oozing out of the sleazy speech he gave Thursday at the American Enterprise Institute was an inadvertent truth regarding the Israeli albatross hanging around the neck of U.S. policy in the Middle East.
